Those are great! I'm glad you came up with more Red Tails.

Military Channel is still airing "Air Aces" series. So far, three chapters pertain the Red Tails. Here's one excerpt:

With all the budget cuts for Air Shows, is unlikely that you have more options to get to one. Houston, being one of the biggest, is still on. I hope I can be there by the end of October. I say this because the Commemorative Air Force Red Tail Project Mustang is one of the main attractions on it. It would be really nice to photo the model in the wing of the real thing... er... the real replica thing (just like the P-47 Tarheel Hal.

You are really getting a lot of these re-done.  Are some of these completely new models?
There are no strangers in this world ...
Only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet

That makes ten Mustangs plus the Texan Trainer.

some are new...some are updated versions of ones I did with the first gen template.
More can be added, but only if someone requests a specific plane.

I tried to get input regarding any specific Tuskegee Airmen planes, but got very little response.
I think the general concensus is "any Tuskegee plane is alright".

Happy New Year 2014!!!

Lets start the New Year off with a new Mustang!
And, another Air Racer!

I saw this plane at the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum
after Ray (Texman) suggested it would make a great model.

I agreed...and especially since its another Air Racer.

This aircraft won the Bendix Air Races back in 1947 and 48 and set
a couple of transcontinental speed records...before its record flight
across the North Pole from Norway to Alaska.

The 1/33 scale P-51C Mustang Excalibur III is now in the store!
At www.papermodelshop.com
and here, at ecardmodels.com: http://www.ecardmodels.com/index.php/1-33-p-51c-mustang-excalibur-iii-air-racer-paper-model.html

Haven't put out a B/C model Mustang in quite some time!

So, its about time.

This aircraft was a special request from a modeller friend...
and it turned out to be an interesting subject for me.

One of very few "hack" B/C Mustangs...2 seat transports/trainers
...this airplane is well known by scale modellers and has been represented many times in miniature.
It is famous for its one time use as a two seat transport, carrying the General in Chief, Dwight D Eisenhower,
on a recon mission over French battlefields.

The aircraft had a long and storied career during WW2...
in fact it is believed to be the longest serving B model mustang of the War.
And it went through a number of versions and appearances during that career.
After a crash landing, it was rebuilt and converted to be used as a Trainer.
A rear seat was added in place of the rear Fuel tank, and a removeable canopy section was devised.

Unfortunately it is often represented by modellers in its later appearance (long after the Eisenhower flight)
with different aircraft codes GQ-(Pi), fresh paint, a newer modified rear cockpit canopy ...
and sporting new nose art, with the name "The Stars Look Down".

The aircraft did not look this way when it flew with Eisenhower and I decided to model the aircraft
in a more accurate manner...based mostly on what you can see in a video of the actual Eisenhower recon flight.
I created a number of screen clips and referred to those for markings, overall paint scheme, and visual details.

The model is in the store now....
at www.papermodelshop.com
and here, at ecardmodels.com

I'll post some pics of the finished model when I see them.





Below, is how most scale modellers choose to represent this aircraft.
In a much later configuration, that is inaccurate if representing the "Eisenhower Hack".
And, most modelers also seem to keep adding the upper wing D-Day striping...odd.
